It actually has 200hp and here is the specs on it I copied over from the other celica forum:

"This is a special Car, only 1200 ever made. Stripped down to the shell and rebuilt from the ground up by Toyota Racing Development (TRD). Suspension pickup points and roof pillars strengthened, body seam welded. The six speed gearbox has a TRD helical LSD. The engine is modified, using lighter pistons, re-profiled camshafts, lighter valves and a lighter flywheel, pushing the 1800cc all alloy engine power to over *200ps/140lb ft (conservative TRD figure) Torque, with terrific throttle response, making this lightweight car surprisingly quick.
The suspension is TRD sportivo; shocks, springs, roll bars and bushes. The Interior is retrimmed with blue alcantra seats and door panels, A sports SRS steering wheel, TRD Quickshifter and TRD instruments are installed with 240kph clock, TRD 17" wheels are installed with trd cat back exhaust."

You are all wrong. GTS (180 hp)= USA T-Sport (192hp)= Europe

TRD Sports M Celica (200hp)

^^Japan. And good luck with that too. Rosh, there wasn't a US T-Sport. It's a GTS in the US, a T-sport in other some other countries. The TRD Sports M was available, I believe, only in Japan.

combatc87, I didn't know that until I looked it into it further. I found out by browsing the UK Toyota Website, that you can buy one and it has 192hp. I still would like to know, like gts_drew what gives it that extra 12 horses.

The TRD Sports M is still the ultimate factory Celica.

^^ what he said. the M sport is the 200 hp model and it comes with an LSD, spot welded A frames and other various goodies that you cant get unles syou have a valid M-sport VIN #.

thats the celica most related to the Type R integra. but nobody likes to mention it cause it would own a type R any day rofl

what gives the T-Sport its extra power is a less restrictive exhaust system, specifically the cat. due to US emissions laws, the cars have to be brought up to certain standards, so to make them legal some things have to be change.
